Nike Air Max 97 OG Retro Metallic Gold
The Nike Air Max 97 was a neck-breaking release when it first dropped 20 years ago. Christian Tresser’s futuristic design was inspired by Japan’s high-speed Bullet trains, with contours and curves that gave the shoe a true feeling of speed and momentum. Whilst the shoe looked great in many of the colourways that followed the initial silver edition, the metallic versions will always be highly coveted. To drop such a major release in full reflective colours was a bold and brave move from the brand – and it paid off, in a big way. The 97 is one of those models that people know, no matter how interested in footwear they are.
